Creativepro.com and Corel have teamed up, to provide an online service using Corel’s image-editing Designer F/X technology.

The free tool will be issued early next quarter to members of Creativepro.com - a Web portal for creative professionals.

Designer F/X is powered by Corel Photo-Paint, and can be used to add and manipulate special effects and save images in any format. The only necessary software is a Web browser.

Creativepro.com also announced the People’s Choice Awards. These awards will be given twice a year in recognition of outstanding hardware, software, and online services that cater to the creative community.

Voting takes place online at the creativepro.com Web site, and the winners will be announced at the Seybold Seminars.
